At Voices in the Dark we bring you powerful, mind- and soul-expanding conversations about real life psychology, philosophy, psychedelics, spirituality, social dynamics and much more.

We’re a podcast, a blog, and a community of likeminded individuals who want to become the best versions of themselves. We’re dedicated to never stop Learning How To Human.

Our mission is to entertain, provoke, inform, and make you question everything you think you know.

The 48 Laws of Power Series

Have you ever been on the wrong end of ‘office politics’?

Or lost out to less talented people who are better at ‘playing the game’?

Join us as we our explore Robert Greene’s provocative and compelling study of the 48 Laws of Power, in which he lays bare the psychological principles that ultimately shape all human relations.

Often seen as a handbook for the ‘modern Machiavelli’, we take a closer look at how understanding and implementing these Laws can actually enrich your life personally, professionally and spiritually.


The Modern Stoic Series

What can Stoicism – writings from two millennia ago – tell us about our difficult lives today?

A lot, it turns out.

These pages contain some of the most profound and timeless wisdom in all of human history.

In response to our own tumultuous times, a Stoic renaissance is underway and gathering steam among some of the greatest thinkers, artists and entrepreneurs today.

As bestselling author and marketing genius Ryan Holiday puts it, Stoicism is ‘a tool in the pursuit of self-mastery, perseverance, and wisdom: something one uses to live a great life, rather than some esoteric field of academic inquiry’.

In The Modern Stoic podcast series, we demystify this ‘tool’ and explore how it can be used right here, right now to create that great life and help us become the best versions of ourselves.




After spending far too many years in educational institutions, Jon got a PhD in History but is now finally learning something about the real world and the people in it. He always felt that science and scholarship needed more dick jokes and is on a mission to redress that balance. He writes, talks, travels, sings, and has a problematic relationship with cake and coffee.

He’d love to hear from you.




A disturbingly quick study in most fields, Andrea’s autism made learning people more of a challenge. The works of Robert Greene shone a light on the otherwise deeply confusing world of other people’s psyches, transforming the world around him into something which finally made sense.
